Version 5.20 (12/23/2016)

It’s Christmas release!

Small adjustments in the code, but here comes 2 highly anticipated features for you!

1. Show your custom commands on the home screen

Now you can select up to 4 of your custom commands in the main screen (GCODE or SSH, you decide!). Indeed, most of you requested this feature. You simply have to edit one of your command and check the box ‘Show on home’. Why only four? That’s because there was still 4 free spaces in the control tools panel. So for the moment, your selected commands will be displayed here. In 2017, I will prepare you a really better integration, without this 4 limit ๐Ÿ˜‰

Also, in order to bring more colors in the UI, I’ve let you the possibility to choose your favorite color to tint the command icon. This one will be applied in both

2. Show the Z height during your prints

The second feature is about the display of the Z height during your prints. I’ve received many and many e-mails to know if I can integrate this. So here it is! But please, note that:

* The Z value could be displayed only in the real-time 2D visualizer since I have to analyse the GCODE file in order to compute this information

* The Z value Printoid displays is not computed in the same manner than OctoPrint does. So it might shown a small difference between my value and the Foosel’s value.

* This is an approximation: I can’t affirm that the value is the real current height of your Z axis, but may be + or – one layer height.

Again, have a merry Christmas you and your loved ones!
